So, I mentioned yesterday that I’ve been posting a photo every day, to Instagram of Gidget in a beanie that she got last week while at the launch party for Burton Snowboard’s 2015 line. Sometimes she doesn’t even realize I’ve taken the photo until I’m looking through the images and am about to ask her if it’s OK to post. She looked at it before I posted the shot, told me it was OK, but I’m pretty sure all she thought was, “Yep, mom got another picture of me in the most awesome beanie ever. Yawwwwwn.” As I was looking at the photo while lining it up on the grid display in Instagram, the total irony of the picture caught me completely off-guard. Look at the title of the book she’s reading, then look at who’s sitting next to her, and how he’s looking at her:
Kinda makes me wonder how many other subtle nuances I miss in other casual photos I take. Oh, and it makes me giggle pretty hard, especially considering the bond my kid and her cat share.
